Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/13/2016

Omar Mateen, the ISIS mujahid who murdered 50 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando on Sunday morning, had frequented the club in the past and made conversation with some of his fellow patrons. He also reportedly used a gay dating app to make contact with gay men.

In other news, a knife-wielding terrorist who had sworn allegiance to the Islamic State attacked and killed an off-duty police officer and his wife at their home in Paris. The mujahid took the wife and child hostage before being shot and killed by police. By then the wife was dead, but their little boy was saved by police.

Precariat, Bilderberg and the Microchip

The world’s elite is at the annual Bilderberg Group meeting in Dresden, Germany. Among the top concerns of the annual gathering of world leaders, CEOs, super-billionaires, and other members of planet Earth’s ruling class are the “precariat” and the middle class. “Precariat” is a term promoted by Guy Standing, a British economist, which describes a fast growing class of people who have no hope for a decent future, can only find part time or temporary jobs at minimum wage, and have to do all kinds of work for which they don’t get paid. This rapidly expanding “precariat,” according to Standing, is composed of a “growing class of people who feel insecure about their jobs, communities, and life in general… In addition, they are often paid in cash.” They are growing in number in America, Europe, China, and many other areas. They include “grey market domestics paid in cash,” those who are not technically trained, seniors who struggle with disappearing pensions, retirement funds, and savings, and soaring health care costs. It also includes single mothers who have difficulty making money and the millennial generation who were promised jobs upon graduation and often can only find part time and minimum wage jobs.

The “precariat” class is of great concern to the elite and Bilderberg Group because this group is angry, anxious, and alienated and is driving the rise of populist politicians like Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and, in Europe, right wing and nationalist candidates whom the elite cannot control. The reason the Bilderberg Group is discussing both the “precariat” and middle class is because the middle class in America and other places is shrinking, which is fueling the rise of the “precariat.” Outsourcing of manufacturing, along with trade treaties and economic policies that favor the one percent have gutted significant sectors of the American Middle Class.

In America, Europe, China, Japan, and the many other places in the world where there was an existing or emerging middle class, the global economy, which globalists in the U.S. and the EU promised us would bring more economic prosperity, has caused the opposite through downward pressure on wages due to global competition. When the beginnings of these trends first began to emerge with events like Rockefeller going to China in the 1970s and the creation of NAFTA, GATT, and the WTO, etc., the American people were told through a corporate controlled media that this would allow Americans to prosper in the new global market place.

Of course, the globalists knew what the real outcome would be from the beginning. That is why during this entire time the one percent have grown incredibly richer while most Americans have grown poorer. In anticipation of global chaos and monetary crisis, the elite, through organizations like Bilderberg, quietly created a technological surveillance state for the purpose of total control.

“We did have an assault weapons ban for ten years,” Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “I think it should be reinstated.”

“Let’s keep weapons of war off our streets like the one that was used in Orlando,” she added, talking to the Today Show.

Co-Worker Reported Nightclub Killer; Ignored Because of Political Correctness

Bosses refused to act on Omar Mateen’s “unhinged” behavior because he was a Muslim

A former co-worker of Omar Mateen, the man behind the deadliest shooting in U.S. history, repeatedly tried to draw attention to Mateen’s homophobic comments and “unhinged” behavior but was ignored because Mateen was a Muslim and bosses were concerned about being politically incorrect.

Florida Today reports that former Fort Pierce police officer Daniel Gilroy worked the same job as Mateen for G4S Security at the south gate at PGA Village for several months from 2014-2015.

Gilroy frequently complained that Mateen “frequently made homophobic and racial comments” and that his behavior was “unhinged and unstable,” but bosses ignored him “because (Mateen) was Muslim.”

After Gilroy quit, he was stalked by Mateen, with the killer sending him dozens of text messages every day.

“I quit because everything he said was toxic,” Gilroy said Sunday, “and the company wouldn’t do anything. This guy was unhinged and unstable. He talked of killing people.”

The circumstances are similar in nature to how the San Bernardino jihadists were not reported to police because neighbors feared they would be labeled racist.

Exclusive: 8 Orlando Residents on ISIS ‘Kill List’

Thousands of Americans listed as targets

An ISIS kill list released online Monday includes 8 residents from Orlando, Florida — the site of Sunday morning’s horrific terror attack that took the lives of more than 50 people.

The list, obtained and analyzed by Infowars, mentions what appears to be the names, addresses and emails of 8 females from the Orlando area.

Whether any of the Orlando residents listed were among the dead or injured is unknown at this time…

Mateen’s father, Seddique Mir Mateen, told NBC News that the attack could be related to an incident in which his son became “angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami a couple of months ago.”

A coworker of Mateen’s also described him as a homophobic, unhinged and unstable individual who even talked of killing others.

“I quit because everything he said was toxic,” Daniel Gilroy told Florida Today, “and the company wouldn’t do anything. This guy was unhinged and unstable. He talked of killing people.”

Facebook Deletes Pamela Geller’s ‘Stop Islamization of America’ Page After Orlando Attack

The page was run by Pamela Geller

Facebook has deleted “Stop Islamization Of America,” a group with over 50,000 members in the wake of deadly Islamic terror attack in Orlando, Florida.

The page was run by Pamela Geller, the well-known Islam critic and Breitbart contributor who led efforts to stop construction of the Ground Zero Mosque. Geller reported the removal of her Facebook group on Twitter, and called on supporters to politely request its reinstatement in a subsequent post on her personal website.

Mayor of Lawrence: ‘Clash of Cultures’ Behind Orlando Attack

“An ethos of violence”

On Monday afternoon Lawrence Mayor Martin Oliner spoke to Arutz Sheva about the attack and the President Obama’s response.

“What we have now is a culture of violence and terror,” said Oliner. “There is a whole ethos of violence, people have no limits.”

In contrast to the president’s refusal to cite Islamic terrorism, Oliner claimed that a culture of Islamic radicalism was at the heart of a growing “clash of cultures”, pitting the Judeo-Christian West against elements of the Muslim world.

“Even if it’s not ISIS, the idea that someone would kill 50 people in a terrorist attack, this probably has to do with Islamic terrorism.”

“There’s a culture of terrorism, and that culture is certainly coming from within parts of the Islamic community, and the whole world is now suffering from Islamic terrorism.”

While Islamic terrorism in the past was largely confined to the Middle East, says Oliner, today it has metastasized as a culture of violence, inspiring killers around the world.

“Clash of cultures”

“Traditionally people thought of the Middle East as the hotspot. But terror can grow beyond that hotspot — and it even come to America. Now there’s an entire culture of terrorism driven by Islamic radicalism. It’s a war of cultures — a clash of cultures. “I’m worried about what’s going on not only here [in Israel], but in the rest of the world, including France, Belgium, and now Florida.”

Oliner criticized Obama and other senior Democrats for tying the attack to the politics of gun-control.

“The fact that Obama and Clinton blame this on guns, rather than talk about Islamic extremism, is ludicrous[…].

New Edition of Hillary’s Book Deletes Section About Her TPP Support

Liars should never write books. Books are a real problem. Because liars always have to be ready to change their stories, and once a book is released, there’s no changing it. The book says what it says, and it’s out there for people to read. If you now want to say something different, how do you deal with the fact that your own book is floating around contradicting you?

But Hillary Clinton has to change her story because that’s what she does, so the fact that she wrote a book in 2014 bragging about getting other nations to support the Trans-Pacific Partnership cannot stop her from pretending it never happened — a must now that she has changed her position from calling TPP the “gold standard” of trade agreements to opposing it entirely.

So what’s liar to do? Re-release the book, of course! And this time you just take that part out. See? It never happened:

The paperback version of Clinton’s 2014 book, which details her work as secretary of state for President Obama, omits the passage in which she touts her efforts to get the country to support the 12-nation trade deal, which she once referred to as the “gold standard” for such agreements.

Orlando: An Act of War

After over 50 Americans were brutally slaughtered and over 50 wounded on their own soil in the latest Islamic terrorism attack, it’s utterly shameful that President Obama cannot bring himself to say the words “radical Islam.” Equally abhorrent are Muslim Brotherhood groups, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), sending out their taqqiyah deception squads to feign sympathy for victims of Islamic terrorist attacks and referring to this most recent bloodbath as a hate crime.

President Obama, not to mention Bernie Sanders, is calling for more gun control. Most Western world leaders and politicians are living in fantasyland when they blindly claim that guns are evil rather than condemn the supremacist ideology behind radical Islam, which believes that gays, non-believers, apostates, and others must die, as mandated in the Koran and other Islamic doctrine. “We know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate,” stated President Obama. Not a peep about radical Islamic terrorism.

Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton also refers to the Orlando jihadist attack as an act of terror and hate. “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism,” Hillary tweeted in November. If Islam has nothing to do with terrorism, then why was only an imam — and not a rabbi, priest, or swami — invited to speak at the first press conference after the Orlando slaughter at the Pulse Nightclub?…

Orlando Mosque Tied to Case Hillary’s State Dept Scrubbed

When Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik massacred 14 people in San Bernardino, California, last December, newly retired Department of Homeland Security agent Philip Haney discovered that a case he developed might have prevented the attack if it had not been shut down by his agency and Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

Now, Haney tells WND that the mosque where Orlando killer Omar Mir Siddique Mateen worshiped several times a week also has a tie to that case.

He noted that the FBI twice had Mateen on its radar, but closed down the investigations both times.

Pictured: Grim Scene as Bodies Are Carried Out Four at a Time Through the Night at Bullet-Riddled Gay Nightclub Where 49 Revelers Were Massacred by ISIS Fanatic Before Swat Team Smashed Down a Wall and Shot Him Dead

A series of photos shows the devastating scene left after Omar Mateen opened fire inside an Orlando gay night club killing 49 innocent people and injuring dozens more.

Mateen, who became the worst mass shooter in American history, shot more than 100 people with an AR-15 assault rifle and handgun on the dance floor at Pulse night club early Sunday morning.

Investigators are examining evidence at Pulse nightclub in an attempt to uncover exactly what happened at the nightclub.

Sunday night, workers were removing bodies four at a time on stretchers out of the club and loaded them into white vans. The action was repeated over and over. The covered bodies were taken to the County Medical Examiner’s office.

On Monday, officials said they had identified 48 of the 49 victims, and are working to inform their families. Once their families have been informed, the names will be released online. So far, 26 of those names have been released.

Republican Traitors Convention

Why are some Republican Rats abandoning the ship as it rises on a swelling tide of popular support?

Some factions with the Republican Party are doing their best to hand over the keys to the White House to the irretrievably corrupt pathological liar Hillary Clinton because they dislike presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.

This suicidal gesture will help Barack Obama complete his fundamental transmogrification of America. The movement is being led by high-profile Republicans like two-time loser Mitt Romney and unsuccessful California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman who have proved over the years that they understand so little about electoral politics that they would have no business directing a two-car funeral procession.

Shooter’s Father Says This Was Not About Religion…

Orlando Nightclub In Gun Free Zone… Pledged His Allegiance to ISIS on 911 Call

The shooter’s father claims that Mateen was not a terrorist and that the shooting was not about religion, but rather, about his disgust in seeing two gay men kiss each other:

Because of his name and heritage, there were immediate questions about Mateen’s possible ties to Islamic fundamentalism — but his father said it may have been a recent incident involving two men showing each other affection that set the gunman off.

“We were in Downtown Miami, Bayside, people were playing music. And he saw two men kissing each other in front of his wife and kid and he got very angry,” Mir Seddique, told NBC News on Sunday. “They were kissing each other and touching each other and he said, ‘ Look at that. In front of my son they are doing that.’ And then we were in the men’s bathroom and men were kissing each other.”

“We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident,” Seddique said. “ We weren’t aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country.”

Seddique added, “This had nothing to do with religion.”

Source: NBC News

Except it had everything to do with Mateen’s religion, which actively calls for the execution of gays, Christians and other non-Muslims:

The gunman who opened fire at a gay Florida nightclub early Sunday, shooting over 100 people, had called 911 moments before to pledge allegiance to the leader of ISIS, law enforcement sources told NBC News.

Calls for gun control are already trending on social media, with Paul Watson of Infowars noting that rather than looking at the real source of the problem, advocates for firearms restrictions are confused at which hashtag to use:

Leftists can’t make their minds up on which gun control hashtag to go with. It’s not about gun control, it’s about Islam.

Of note is that while anti-gun advocates say that this tragedy could have been prevented had guns been banned in Orlando, the fact is that the Pulse nightclub was, in fact, inside of a gun-free zone.

The shooter undoubtedly knew this and chose his target with that in mind:

The ‘Religion of Peace’ Rears Its Ugly Head — Again!

Political Correctness: There are so many lies being told now by our leaders in authority who have completely betrayed our trust.

For those of you reading this who are unfamiliar with modern world history (and so many today are), Winston Churchill was the amazing elder statesman who kept Great Britain and most of Europe from succumbing to the clutches of Hitler and his Nazi Germany. Nazi Germany was a bad thing (which was also greatly in league with Islam). Today many Islamists actually applaud Hitler and his Nazi followers for their torture and genocide of several million Jews (and gays). Over a century ago this historically-proven, trustworthy scribe wrote (among other relative things) that, “Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.” He even went so far as to declare, “Islam is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia (rabies) in a dog.”

So, outside of today’s newly constructed, politically correct and trendy, cognitive ‘Iron Curtain’ that shields a ‘new age’ America — the young, ignorant and those in denial — from truth and common sense, it is possible to hear a different take on this ‘religion of peace’ that is generally not being told: Islam is a clear and present threat to this nation’s survival. In their homeland, a very Islamic ISIS tosses gays to their deaths from the tops of buildings. Sunday night, here in the U.S., one of their pledges shot and killed dozens for the same ‘crime’…

As I have said from the beginning, there are no ‘good Muslims’ or ‘bad Muslims’. There are only Muslims who are at different levels of familiarity or commitment to the instruction/discipline of the Quran. Each and every follower of Mohammed has the potential to become a ticking timebomb waiting to detonate. And they are especially dangerous because they wear no identifying uniforms. Militant Islam is a chameleon that changes form and color in order to walk undetected within any society.

The Surveillance State Didn’t Stop the Orlando Attack — Nor Will the Resultant Police State

These programs were never designed to detect, stop, or catch actual terrorists in the first place

Mass surveillance has, for the larger segment of the U.S. populace, become an integral facet in the illusory feeling of security. But does it serve any purpose at all — other than providing the Surveillance State a handy excuse for keeping tabs on anyone it chooses, while simultaneously quashing every one of our paltry remaining legal rights?

While it may be comforting to feel the overarching blanket of indiscriminate surveillance keeps us all safe from harm, the deaths of at least 50 people in an Orlando nightclub prove indisputably the contrary.

In fact, the National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation — and, indeed, every agency — attempting to employ the weary excuse they spy on you to keep you safe can be disproven in the events of the early morning hours this past Sunday…

Shortly after this disgusting infringement on the personal freedoms we hold dear, there are calls for stricter strictures on gun control and freedom of association emanated from the mouths of politicians — who, no less, happen to be involved in contentious electoral proceedings. We are, of course, expected to swallow this — no questions asked — as the U.S. government moves to ‘rein in terrorists and their agendas.’

Don’t be fooled. Though the quote by Benjamin Franklin — “Those who would give up essential Liberty to purchase a little temporary Safety deserve neither Liberty nor Safety” — has been so incredibly skewed from its original meaning, the modern understanding holds fast.

Trump on Islamic Terrorist Attack in Florida

“The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world.” —Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Trump released a statement regarding the terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida. Here is part of what he said.

“Last night, our nation was attacked by a radical Islamic terrorist. It was the worst terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11, and the second of its kind in 6 months.

If we do not get tough and smart real fast, we are not going to have a country anymore. Because our leaders are weak, I said this was going to happen — and it is only going to get worse. I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist attack. We can’t afford to be politically correct anymore.”

The terrorist, Omar Mir Saddique Mateen, is the son of an immigrant from Afghanistan who openly published his support for the Afghanistani Taliban and even tried to run for President of Afghanistan. According to Pew, 99% of people in Afghanistan support oppressive Sharia Law.”

Radical Islam

Mr. Trump also reminded people that President Obama has failed to use the words, “Radical Islam,” and said that if Hillary also refuses to use those words, she should get out of the race. Euphemisms and political correctness are anathema to our presumptive Republican nominee. Thankfully, Mr. Trump tells it like it is, and that is why he resonates with working Americans.

He is right, there will be more attacks. The barbaric destruction of civilization by Islamists is well-known worldwide. The root word for Islam is “al-Silm,” which means “submission” or “surrender.” The Quran not only calls Muslims to submit to Allah, it also orders them to subdue people of other religions until they are in a full state of submission to Islamic rule. This has inspired the aggressive history of Islam and its military and demographic success in conquering other cultures…

For many years, America has accepted hundreds of thousands of Muslim immigrants, and for the past seven and a half years, our Marxist Muslim President has seeded the American nation with millions of Islamic young men. The so-called “refugees” are pouring into our country daily. This is called a “Hijrah,” the migration to Islamize a new land, and it is Hillary’s invasion of Libya that caused the snowball effect we see today with boatloads of refugees arriving in America daily.

What we’ve seen in Europe with rapes and pillaging has changed the landscape of the countries who have accepted these “refugees.” Homes and towns have been destroyed, cultures demolished, civilization eliminated. Muslim male refugees are actually gang raping women in Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, and Finland. All created by their high-paid government officials.

TWA 800: Breaking — Air Traffic Controller Tells All

The “government will make us disappear”

As I hoped would happen, American Thinker’s series on TWA Flight 800 has prompted individuals with first hand knowledge to come forward. “Mark Johnson” is one. An air traffic controller (ATC), he worked the night of July 17, 1996 — the night TWA Flight 800 was destroyed — at the New York Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) located in Westbury, New York.

Johnson has provided me with his real name, and I have confirmed that he was in a position to know what he says he knows. He requested that I use an alias because he has children who depend on him. The federal government, he believes, “will seek revenge, retribution and/or any other remedy they feel like. I would be fearful my pension would be at risk.” I have heard this sentiment voiced by many people involved in this incident.

Although Johnson was not responsible for tracking TWA Flight 800, he spoke directly with the ATC who did. In fact, he asked him “plenty of questions to prepare myself for the ‘suits’ who were beginning to arrive.” Along with several other ATCs, he viewed the radar tape of the incident. According to Johnson, “A primary radar return (ASR-9) indicated vertical movement intersecting TWA 800.”

An advanced radar system, the Northrop Grumman ASR-9 is able to detect a “target” in severe clutter even when the target has no transponder. The absence of a transponder is what distinguishes a “primary radar return” from a “secondary” one. In others words, the radar picked up a small, unidentified, ascending object intersecting TWA 800 in the second before the 747 “disappeared from radar.”

After Johnson and his supervisor watched the video tape replay with audio, they turned to each other and said in unison, “What the f***!” Asked by his supervisor if he had ever seen anything like this before, Johnson said yes — while in the Navy days doing missile test fires at sea.

A day later, now knowing the full scope of the tragedy, Johnson asked if he could take another look at the radar tape. “Can’t, it’s gone,” said his supervisor. “We had better say nothing,” said Johnson, “or the f***ing government will make us disappear.” The supervisor agreed.

Witness Describes Second Shooter, Accomplice Blocking Door in Orlando

“Stay inside, stay inside,” a man told panicked patrons

The Palm Beach Post interviewed a man who witnessed the shooting at the Pulse in Orlando, Florida.

Janiel Gonzalez told the newspaper he heard two guns during the massacre.

“I’m pretty sure it was more than one person. I heard two guns going at the same time.”

“It was very, very crazy. He kept on shooting and shooting and shooting, rapid fire,” Gonzalez said, “and he’d change (clips), put in more ammunition-bud-dudda. I could smell the ammo in the air.”

He said he heard another gun from a different direction, so he wonders if there were two gunmen.

Gonzalez said “we were all crawling on the floor trying to find a place to exit. I looked to my right and I could see people going through some curtains. We were digging through the curtains and found a door.”

The door, however, was blocked by a man. He wasn’t sure if it was a club security person or an accomplice to the gunmen.

“Fifty people were trying to jump over each other trying to exit the place. There was a guy holding the door and not letting us exit. He’s like ‘Stay inside, stay inside.’ As he is saying that, the shooter keeps getting closer and closer and the sound of the bullets is getting closer. Everyone starts to panic. People are getting trampled. Let us out, let us out!’“

Gonzalez’ first thought was that it was a hate crime. “This guy is trying to prevent us from leaving. Maybe they’re working together,” he said.

Witness: Omar Mateen Drank Alone at Pulse Before Attack

FORT PIERCE — At least four regular customers at the Orlando gay nightclub where a gunman killed 49 people said Monday that they had seen Omar Mateen there before.

“Sometimes he would go over in the corner and sit and drink by himself, and other times he would get so drunk he was loud and belligerent,” Ty Smith said.

More details emerged Monday about the 29-year-old gunman and what he did in the days leading up to the massacre, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

He was at Walt Disney World in April, said a Disney manager who requested anonymity.

FBI Director James Comey said his agency was trying to nail down that report and the possibility that Mateen was scouting the amusement park as a potential target, the Associated Press reported.

Smith told the Orlando Sentinel that he saw Mateen inside at least a dozen times.

“We didn’t really talk to him a lot, but I remember him saying things about his dad at times,” Smith said. “He told us he had a wife and child.”

When asked about those sightings, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said he had no information.

Another Pulse regular, Kevin West, told the Los Angeles Times that Mateen messaged him on and off for a year using a gay chat app.

They had never met, West said, but he watched as Mateen entered the club about 1 a.m. Sunday, an hour before the shooting began…

After Threats, Security Concerns for German MPs With Turkish Roots

German lawmakers of Turkish origin who have been threatened after parliament declared the 1915 massacre of Armenians a genocide have been warned not to travel to Turkey and will get increased police protection, media reported on Saturday.

The resolution in Germany’s parliament this month labelling the 1915 killings by Ottoman forces as genocide has added to tensions between Berlin and Ankara.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has said that the 11 lawmakers of Turkish origin who voted for the resolution should be given blood tests, and has accused them of having “tainted blood” and of being terrorists.

The leader of Germany’s Green party, Cem Oezdemir, who pushed for the resolution, has also received death threats.

Der Spiegel said the Foreign Ministry had warned the lawmakers against travel to Turkey because their safety could not be guaranteed. The Foreign Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“It’s unspeakable to know that it’s not possible to fly there for now,” Aydan Oezoguz, Germany’s integration commissioner, was quoted by the magazine as saying.

Other lawmakers with Turkish roots have also cancelled business trips to the country, Der Spiegel said.

Separately, the Frankfurt Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung reported that the 11 lawmakers will now receive increased police protection and further security measures for both their professional and private activities.

“The threats against lawmakers of Turkish origin are unacceptable,” Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told the paper. “Of course security measures will be adjusted if necessary.”…

France: Paris Police Killer ‘Pledged Allegiance to Islamic State’

A policeman and his wife were killed in a frenzied knife attack at their home in a Paris suburb on Monday night by a man who reportedly shouted “Allahu Akhbar”.

French police sources said the unnamed killer had pledged allegiance to Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Isil claimed responsibility for the killings in a statement released by the Amaq news agency, the group’s propaganda outlet, which it also used to announce that the Orlando massacre was perpetrated by an Isil fighter.

The couple’s three-year-old son was rescued after police stormed the home in the north-western Paris suburb of Magnanville and shot dead the attacker.

He stabbed the 42-year-old officer, who held the rank of “commandant” (commander), nine times in the stomach at his front door. After stabbing the policeman, the attacker forced his way into the home.

It was unclear how the policeman’s wife was killed. She worked as a secretary at a local police station…

‘Leave’ Takes Shocking 19-Point Lead in Brexit Poll — “If it Happens, Gold Will be the World’s Strongest Currency”

The headlines go from bad to worse for the UK and EU establishment as yet another new poll this weekend, by Opinium, shows”Brexit” leading by a remarkable 19 points (52% chose to leave the EU against 33% choosing to keep the status quo). This result comes after 2 polls Friday night showing a 10-point lead for “leave” which sparked anxiety across markets.

This surge in “leave” probability comes despite an additional 1.5 million voters having registered this week (which many expected to increase “remain” support). Further anger towards EU was exposed when former cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith warned that seven new prisons will need to be built in the UK by 2030 to cope with the rising number of migrant criminals (presumedly due to ‘staying’ in the EU). With market anxiety rising, as One River’s CIO notes, if Brexit happens, gold will soar.

[Comment: But the referendum is not binding — ie, if enough Eurocentric traitorous MPs go against their constituents UK could still stay in.]

Canadian Robert Hall Beheaded by IS-Linked Group After Kidnapping in Philippines

An Islamic criminal group has executed the second of three foreigners kidnapped from a resort in the southern Philippines, despite a relentless hunt by the Philippine military.

A spokesman for the Islamic State-linked Abu Sayyaf group told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that Canadian sailor Robert Hall was beheaded on Monday afternoon after the expiry of a deadline to pay a US$13 million ransom for three hostages.

The body would be dumped in a town, he said. Philippine media also quoted multiple sources confirming the killing because ransom demands were not met…

Orlando Killer Worked for Company Transporting Illegal Immigrants Inside US; Was Interviewed by FBI 3 Times

Mateen may have had access to sophisticated military weapons and equipment

In a surprising discovery, the Palm Beach Post first reported that according to state records, Orlando shooter Omar Mateen — who as we reported earlier was licensed as a security guard and also holds a firearms license — was employed by the US subsidiary of G4S plc, a British multinational security services company, whose US-headquarters are located in Jupiter, Fla, and which also happens to be the world’s largest security company by revenue.

In other words, Mateen who according to preliminary reports, had been on a terrorist watchlist, and who still managed to obtain weapons thanks to his various licenses and permits just last week, was employed by one of the world’s largest security companies, where he may have had extensive clearances well above his pay grade, not to mention access to sophisticated military weapons and equipment.

But where it gets more disturbing is that as Judicial Watch reported several days ago, in a post titled, “DHS Quietly Moving, Releasing Vanloads Of Illegal Aliens Away From Border”, border patrol sources said that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was quietly transporting illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and releasing them without proper processing or issuing court appearance documents.

  1. The left wing loonies have already got their ducks in a row regarding the dreadful slaughter in Orlando.
    The Bishop of Florida is blaming the doctrines of the Catholic Church regarding homsexuality, no mention that the perpetrator was of the Islamic Faith and whose father is an active supporter of his ” warrior Taliban Brothers”
    It would appear also that the perpetrator was yet another young man with spontaneous mental health issues compelling him to commit mass murder.
    The common denominator in all these attacks is Islamic extremism and yet the excuse makers in chief, led by the duplicitous Obama, are determined to air brush this fact and are aided and abetted by the supine, complicity involved media who have long since distanced themselves from truthful reporting.
    As much as I respect the world wide solidarity being shown for the victims of Orlando, the candle lit vigils, the singing, the rainbow flags,the lighting up of national monuments in rainbow colours etc, we have seen it all before.
    Hostile Arab states lap this up, they see it as a sign of western weakness and a sign of their success. Take the disrespect shown by a large national newspaper in Turkey (an enthusiastic supporter of Obama’s BFF Erdogan
    As it happens) headline 50 perverts killed in Orlando. This is the hatred and contempt you are dealing with, these people loathe westerners and their life styles, revenge they would understand though. Till that simple premise is understood by western leaders these dreadful attacks will blight our lives for decades to come. Solidarity is fine but it requires hard head, cold hearted, retaliatory action too.
    Meanwhile god bless all the victims in Orlando and their bereaved families and friends as well, I hope that your Leaders for once do the right thing by you all.

  2. I see the New York Daily Manure Spreader(News)is blaming the NRA already Just typical of this Birdcage Liner Parrots Toilet to come up with such rash and false statments I hope they go bankrupt like NewsreekNewsweek) did

  3. Innocent people will always be the victims of the criminals on the government payroll and the criminals on the streets .

    The #OrlandoShooting is more proof that regardless of the fancy name, no federal agency can TRULY keep anyone safe. You can only keep yourself safe, depending on a government institution is not only foolish but dangerous. So, can we please END the waste of tax dollars known as the Department of Homeland Security?

    • The latest canard that is about to be exposed. …

      The Orlando-Gay Club “terrorist”….

      Democrat – registered and voted – presumably anti-2A.

      Extremely anti-tolerant – was so horrified by 2 men kissing 5 months ago that he became suddenly enraged and went mass public shooter.

      Active MySpace (seriously they still exist?) Account – 2 of 3 selfies are him wearing NYPD paraphernalia, so I’ll guess very pro-police, anti-freedom.

      Essentially was just a security guard, but really worked for the “fatherland”, aka Dept of Homeland Security.

      Held multiple government permission slips (licenses) to work for the government – which required finger printing, 2 separate background checks by at least 2 different government agencies, and a psychological/mental health investigation.

      While doing such important work for the DHS, breaking the law by transporting illegal aliens to sanctuary cities (who also are breaking the law) so as the illegal aliens can avoid deportation, arrest and court appearances. While working for the DHS, had access to fully automatic rifle (the government calls these self-defense firearms in all RFP’s), and may have had access to highly secure facilities like nuclear-power plants.

      The SWAT team, waited for 3 hours (it wasn’t safe for them, to hell with the people inside – who weren’t allowed to be armed with self-defense tools under threat of a police state violence and unconstitutional laws), and then when they finally did go in, went charging in firing indiscriminately (wonder how many victims were actually friendly fire by SWAT/LEO, but like the Tootsie-Pop, the world may never know).

      About this night club, lots of exits/egress points, and outdoor patio, how is one person able to miraculously cover and prevent 100+from just running?

  4. Your news always keep off Donbass. It’s more interesting here than in Orlando with in average 500 bombs fom Ukraine (USA) side every day.

    Attack of Gorlovka (dwellings) with Grad rocket fire. 3 women dead, many children in hospital close to death:

    • Speaking of Donbass, I just discovered the work of Alexei Kasatkin. Magnificent paintings of Donbass from the late 19th century. In quality, right up there with the French Impressionists. But I’d never heard of him before.

      I recommend looking up a painting called “Woman Miner”. It was made into a postage stamp in Soviet days. The subject of the painting just comes alive; she’s standing right there in front of you.
